    Bazunu starts.

    Jake O’Brien, Matt Doherty, Ryan Manning, Jason Knight, Adam Idah also come in. Maybe one or two more changes.

    I’d expect Cullen to start again, two of the three centre backs. After that it could be all change.

    I'd expect O'Shea to play his strongest side as he sees it rather than much experimentation. He wants to win to boost his CV
    Its really not that complicated!!!

    I wonder if we’ll get to see Azaz. Could be the boost he needs to reignite at club level too.

    Assuming he goes with the same formation, wouldn’t be surprised to see something like this.

    Baz
    O’Brien Collins O’Shea
    Doherty Knight Cullen Manning
    Azaz Idah Johnston

    Could be Ebosele for Doc. Could see O’Dowda in one of the wb spots too.

    I'd like to go 4 at the back and get an extra player going forward in a 4 2 3 1, but I'd keep similar 11 with Bazunu starting and bring in Johnston for one of the defenders. That would allow Szmodics to play more central

    Can see it being the same starting XI again.

    I didn't know until earlier that Switzerland are managed by Murat Yakin

    He has played against Ireland three times, 2-1 loss at Lansdowne in 2002, 2-0 loss in Basel in 2003, and the 1-1 draw in Basel in 2004, and his brother Hakan Yakin scored in each game

    Strangely, neither brother played in Brian Kerr's final game in charge in October 2005.

    They're not on a great run at the moment. Only beat Israel, Belarus, and Andorra(twice) last year.

    On a five game winless run since beating Andorra in September, and had to score twice in the last few minutes to salvage a 3-3 draw at home to Belarus.

    On the other hand, that's not too dissimilar to our recent record

    I could be miles off but, given the circumstances of his gig and the possibility of the new manager being in waiting, is there a chance he is under some “advice” to display as many of the players as possible?

    Hence my keeper question, if its a two game job interview for O'Shea, which he did not shoot down in the post match, he went with his guy yesterday & effectively dropped the other. You'd expect the same again Tuesday in those circumstances.

    I think there is a manager incoming though. At least I think I think that, today at least, tomorrow being another day & all things considered et cetera.

    I doubt he's been told who to play. I think in the post match interview yesterday he was asked if he wanted the job, apparently he just smiled and said ask me after Tuesday. That sounds like a man who thinks he might have a chance and will want to win the game

    Would like to see O'Brien get a run, probably for Omobamidele. Not sure if Coleman and Brady have two games in four days in them? Might see Doherty/Manning start if not.

    Wouldn't expect wholesale changes though. Happy for Sammy to get another run in particular

    They'll have to play an inexperienced (at international level) keeper tomorrow, Sommer is ruled out
    https://www.independent.ie/sport/soc...482911295.html

    Article says that the goalkeepers in the squad have ten caps between them. FWIW, wikipedia says Mvogo(29) has seven, von Ballmoos(also 29) has yet to make his debut, but both have played more than 200 club games, and Omlin(30), who's been called into the squad, has four caps

    Pineapple Stu will surely be relieved. Doubly so if Andy Omabamidele doesn't play.
    Here they come! It’s the charge of the “Thanks” Brigade!

    The important thing is that you'll get to feel superior to him.

    How about you discuss the football, eh?
